Use of symbols for luck is as old as humankind itself. We usually turn to a higher power if we long for love, health, money or good work. And various talismans serve as mediators. A four-leaf has allegedly born its magical power from the moment when Eve brought it with her after being driven out from Paradise to Earth. For thousands of years the belief in its influence has passed from one generation to another.
